Long time lurker and first time poster here with a few q's regarding the topic device.

I. What's the build quality?
II. How compatible (as of now) is it with the existing Dingoo emulator\source port releases?
III. Anything particular to watch out for or be 'buyer beware' about?

Thanks

Is it the same (or similar) process as the Dingoo? Also, do you happen to know which Dingoo model (A320\A330\etc) this thing is closest to?

My apologies. I am even more noob on this than you are, and was assuming knowledge (on your part) that it now seems you simply (and unfortunately) don't have, at least at this time. It looks to me like a Dingoo dev (for lack of a better term) will need to aquire one of these and dig into it. In the meantime, i'll look up some stuff myself from the help section (since the community wiki seems to be down).

Thanks anyway

Dingoo A380 is the closest one. Not completely identical hardware-wise (different screen, different pcb, button mapping), but most compatible software-wise. In brief: everything that runs on A380 must run unchanged on pap kiii, because both have legacy dingux firmware.

Hi, first post.

I just got one of these a few days ago from AliExpress, and I noticed that the CPS2 and Neo-Geo games suffer from severe stutter and freezing during play, so I would very much welcome new firmware to maybe fix the issue. I'll be watching this thread with great interest. Thanks for all your efforts.

@onthebridge
Try to run pcsx4all for Dingoo A320 (it's here on this forum), it has to work.

@DashKrimson
I doubt that there will be updates. For arcade games try FBA for Dingoo a320 (search the link on this forum), it may run as well.

Here's my 3 part PAP KIII review from 2013 when it was a new system.

As you can see, I wasn't impressed with it.

I asked before but does anyone know if it's possible to reflash mine to the firmware you guys are running now?

@Pardue  I'm guessing the. Pap kIII plus is the better model?, 'cause I just tried out alien vs preadtors on this and it had no framerate issues from what I noticed so far.

@sagadego Yes, the KIII Plus is supposed to be an upgraded model.

@dmitry_smagin I'm afraid I'm a total n00b at this dingoo malarky, so I have no idea how to install files to it. So could you please point me to a tutorial or something that I can follow so I don't eff up?

Excuse me for being new and a bit unknowledged. I saw a handheld from awhile ago that had an Actions ATM MIPS chip. I think it was either the ATM7013 or ATM7019, but I am not sure if I remember correctly. I wanted to buy one of those and run opendingux on it since those seem to have a Vivante GC800 GPU. But I am not sure, this is all a lot of speculation on my part. I saw some of the chinese handhelds were run off SD cards that you had to reflash after opening the handhelds.
